Time Warner Cable on Monday announced it is going through with trials of its metered Internet services for new subscribers in Beaumont, Texas. Yahoo writes that only new, not existing, customers would be part of the test, but would initially be unsusceptible to the plans' extraneous fees. Under normal circumstances, users who surpass the bandwidth limit would be charged $1 per gigabyte in excess of up to a 40GB cap.
AT&T is allegedly reversing its position on limiting iPhone sales to one per customer, and returning to the company's former three-per-customer rule after finding sufficient stock of the device to do so. InformationWeek writes that the announcement only comes after one day of restricted sales, but AT&T is supposedly restricting sales of the iPhone to credit and debit card purchases. AT&T would not comment on inventory levels of the device.
Now that sufficient quantities of iPhones are in circulation, Apple recently raised the limit that customers can purchase from two to five. SetteB.IT reports that out of the 1.4 million sales in the US, 18-percent have not been registered with AT&T, which the company assumes are currently in Europe for the most part. Originally, customers paid with a credit card, and Apple would use this to ensure that no more than two iPhones would be sold to the same person. The iPhone is available through either the wireless carrier or Apple's stores in the US and Great Britain, but French and German customers have to purchase their phone from Orange and T-Mobile stores, respectively.
